The sovereign is one of the most famous gold coins ever made.
During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Australian mints in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth contributed to its success in no small measure by producing large quantities from locally mined gold. More than 106 million sovereigns were produced in Perth alone.
In 2009, after a 78-year hiatus, The Perth Mint resumed regular production of gold coins bearing the prestigious sovereign title.
This year’s Perth Mint Gold Proof Sovereign will again appeal to collectors of remarkable gold coins and those looking for a gift that will be treasured for life.
Made with meticulous attention to detail, the 2012 coin is struck from traditional 91.67% pure gold (22-carat) in supreme proof quality.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, just 2,500 will be released in special presentation packaging.
